A cyclist fears 'appalling resurfacing work' on a Lancashire road is an accident waiting to happen.

Michael Roberts, from Garstang, was out enjoying a bike ride this morning when he encountered what he describes as a "highly dangerous" patch of road.

The cyclist has shared two photographs of the road surface along Rawcliffe Road, just east of Cartford Bridge, near St Michael's on Wyre.

He claims that there are heavy bumps and ridges on the road which force cyclists into the middle of the road - something which he worries could cause an accident.

Michael tweeted: “Appalling resurfacing work on Rawcliffe Rd, E of Cartford Bridge Lancs, with ridges every 2 feet. It is highly dangerous for cyclists & will cause accidents. Many roads are resurfaced like this in Wyre.”

Speaking to LancsLive, he added: “The roads around Wyre are indifferent. Earlier yesterday I cycled through Eagland Hill which has a very bad surface and I'll not drive down it, but it is great on a bike! Potholes are a problem but not as serious as this. What I am describing is a dangerous surface that will cause an accident by forcing riders into the middle of the road."

It is not the first time complaints have been made about the road. In recent months there were complaints about wild flowers being cut down as part of the yearly mowing cycle.

The council recently announced plans to spend some £22.3m on 200 individual highway schemes in the county.

The plans include money for road resurfacing - with around £4.9m allocated for resurfacing and "surface dressin"’ schemes on the county’s A, B, and C-classified routes.

LancsLive has approached Lancashire County Council for comment.
